Pharrell Williams is headlining the Entertainment Series at NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, and on Sunday (Feb. 16), the “Happy” artist will be bringing along some special guests to his player introductions performance.
Sean “Diddy” Combs, Snoop Dogg, Nelly and Busta Rhymes will perform alongside Williams at the event, taking place at New Orleans arena. Is some “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II” in the offing? Maybe some “Drop It Like It’s Hot”? How about “Get Like Me”? With Pharrell’s discography, the possibilities are nearly limitless.
On this week’s Hot 100 chart, “Happy,” Williams’ single from the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack, moves up to No. 2. The producer will perform the song at the Academy Awards on Mar. 2.
The NBA All-Star Entertainment Series presented by Sean John at Macy’s will also include a Saturday night performance from Kendrick Lamar; the Sprint NBA All-Star Pregame Concert with Jason Derulo, Aloe Blacc and Mack Wilds; and a New Orleans-inspired halftime show, featuring Trombone Short & Orleans Avenue, Janelle Monae, Dr. John, Gary Clark Jr., and Earth, Wind & Fire.
